The one thing the Flyers must overcome tonight is the elements. Whether that be the weather, the spectacle of the game, or just being short-handed. The Flyers must overcome all of it & adapt to what they can control.

“In this league, you’ve got to learn to adapt,” Flyers head coach Alain Vigneault said. “Have to adapt to everything that’s thrown at you and not make excuses and get the job done.”

With the weather already causing their practice to be moved inside & game time to be pushed back to 7:30pm, the Flyers are already adapting. But, that is just the start.

Still without the six players on the covid list, the Flyers must overcome their absence & solve the Bruins. Something that hasn’t been easy as of late.

“I expect Boston to play extremely well, I expect us to play extremely well & extremely hard as well,” Flyers head coach Alain Vigneault said. “We know Boston is real good team. They are fully healthy. We are in a little different situation. But, we are next man up & no excuses.”

The Flyers look to rebound after their shootout loss to the Rangers on Thursday & end a 5-game losing streak to the Bruins.

“It’s different, it’s not ideal, but it is what it is,” Flyers forward Sean Couturier said. “Boston’s in the same situation as us, so it’s even playing fields. We’ll control what we can control and just show up on game time.”
